Aboriginal Affairs Minister Ben Wyatt presented a Lotterywest grant of $1,195,800 to the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council Aboriginal Corporation on 12 June, to build capacity and establish educational pathways for young Noongar people in WA's South West.

The grant will fund a three-year project to support the Noongar Natural Resouce Management Pathways project - created to increase Aboriginal students' interest in land and natural resource management and science, and create opportunities to learn about managing traditional lands. The project will help build skills and knowledge in land management ahead of the South West Settlement, which will see $1.3 billion in benefits flow to the Noogar people - inlcuding 320,000 hectares of land - which will be transferred into the Noongar Land Estate and joint management of the State's conservation estate.
